This amazing Sculptural project appeared around a bend on the road from Orange to Wellington.. I went whooshing past before the image made sense, it was so unexpected my brain shifted to denial !.. Well we spun about for another look .. Glad we did ! .. the main structure is built from some of the remains of a bridge that went down sometime in the Seventies.. with rail-line clips, a madness of steel bits, Stone, concrete and mosaic tiles,.. some painted and fired.. with what looks like blown glass and a set of tubular chimes. A splendid construct for the birds to play in and the curious to delight in.. filled with images of poignant history and sweet sentiment…, presented on a canvas of a perfect Autumn day. Francis Ferguson was the Visionary and chief artist responsible. We parked under a beautiful large old gum and drifted in and around it for awhile before gunning it for Rosie’s old “hood” , Armidale, NSW for a bit of a break for a few days with not much of an agenda other than to pay a visit to Armidale and New England Fibre and Print Artist, Rhonda Ellem’s home and studio…. more about her tomorrow !
